Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Always serve the greater good……many times in our lives we will be faced with making decisions and choices that will impact others.  At these times we must endeavour to do the best possible thing, for the good of all concerned, under most circumstances.  To different degrees we participate in the building of our lives and in providing for our families and others……some people are only focused on the accumulation of things, and they measure their self-worth with the optics of what they have in their lives.  There are others who belong to a special group, one where they are passionate about helping and serving those around them.

They have discovered the joy that comes from living a life of service, they are constantly looking for opportunities to invest in others.  Truly great people recognize that no matter what gifts they have been given, those gifts have not been deposited in them to stay but rather to flow through them and into others.  A good person brings out the goodness in others and finds happiness by helping others find it.  You cannot hold a light to another’s path without brightening your own.  So be passionate about the labour and help you give to this world…….then the fruits of your labour will take care of themselves. 

Robin Sharma said “Stand for something bigger than yourself.  There are no extra people alive today.  Every single one of us is here for a reason, a special purpose, a mission.  Yes, build a beautiful life for yourself and those you love.  Yes, be happy and have lots of fun.  And yes, become successful, on your own terms rather than on those suggested to you by society. But, above all else, be significant.  Make your life matter, be of use.  And be of service to as many people as possible.  This is how each of us can shift from the realm of the ordinary into the heights of extraordinary…..and walk among the best who have ever lived.”
